Are you tired of constantly shaving, waxing, or plucking? No matter how many times you remove an unwanted hair, the follicle produces another one. Sensitive areas such as bikini lines can even become infected or show a rash if plucked. Why not get rid of the hair once and for all? The newly developed laser devices used for laser hair removal in Mississauga work great for removing unwanted hair. Laser hair removal is simple to perform, and the advanced instruments in use today can bring about amazing results.
We serve the entire region around Mississauga and are ready to tell you about the key benefits of this treatment. You can stop messing with hair removal creams, and you can forget about plucking. Our treatment destroys unwanted hair follicles without damage to the surrounding tissues, and after a series of treatment sessions, you could enjoy a hairless skin surface for years to come.
Hair Strand Growth
Hair strands are long strings of packed-together cells. A bunch of cells grow within the follicle, and they get packed together in a pancake shape. They die, form into other pancakes, and produce the ever-lengthening strand of hair.
After a period of time, the follicle goes into a resting phase. After a while, the strand begins to lengthen once more. Eventually, the follicle goes into an even longer resting phase, and the base of the strand becomes loose. The hair falls out, and this is why you always have a few hair strands in your comb or brush.
When the follicle is in an active phase, it contains much more pigment, making it easier to see. Because it’s darker and denser at this time, it absorbs energy more readily, just as a dark piece of metal will heat up faster than a white one if exposed to light energy. This is how laser hair removal works.
Consultation and Treatment
We will consult with you and examine the areas where you want hair removal. This could be your face, arms, legs, or lower back. We note the tone of the hair and follicles. This allows us to calibrate the laser instrument to deliver just the right wavelength of laser energy and the proper intensity of the light beam.
During the laser hair removal treatment, the follicle absorbs the energy and is damaged beyond repair. It becomes dead tissue and is flushed from the body along with other waste. Since not all follicles in a given surface are in an active phase at the same time, you will most likely need multiple treatment sessions to get the desired results.
